MINI BIO:

Short, jaunty, bald, fast-talking American actor with rolling, watery eyes and wispy moustache, who played runts, weasels, and whining Runyonesque gangsters, often in comic vein. One of life's losers on screen, but a well-liked and ubiquitous figure off it as an inveterate wisecracker and practical joker. In his twenties, Barnett was an airmail pilot who pioneered trans-American routes.
